A Bride for All Seasons Review

A bride for all seasonsTitle and Authors: A Bride for All Seasons, which is actually a book of 4 novellas – And Then Came Spring by Margaret Brownley, An Ever After Summer by Debra Clopton, Autumn’s Angel by Robin Lee Hatcher, and Winter Wedding Bells by Mary Connealy (a NEBRASKA author!).
Published: 2013 through Thomas Nelson who provided me with a free copy of this book for reviewing through BookSneeze
Genre: Christian Fiction
Basic Plot Idea for Each Novella: The owner and editor of the Hitching Post Mail-Order Bride Catalogue edits the ads and letters sent through his catalogue to make people look more appealing. So when the bride arrives to meet her groom, surprises abound and they have to figure out what to do about their predicament.
Setting: Post Civil War, small towns in Western America
My Thoughts: I got all excited thinking maybe one of these stories was going to take place in Nebraska when I read in the first sentence of Autumn’s Angel, “the plains of western Nebraska lay flat, lifeless, empty.” Unfortunately, the mail order bride, Luvena, was just traveling through on her way to Idaho from New York. That was really the only disappointing part of the book.
All four stories are fun to read and have happy endings. They aren’t life changing reading, just clean pleasure reading. All novellas are built around the same idea but each has a creative and unique plot. If you are familiar with one of the authors and like their work, then you’ll like all of these stories. Reading this is a great way to become familiar with other authors.
Novellas like these are great for the undisciplined bookworm. Since the story isn’t as long as a normal novel you don’t have as much of an opportunity to become so absorbed with the book and you don’t end up “needing” to read for as long, that is if you can finish one without starting the other.
My Overall Rating (5 point scale): 4:0
